Two people who will testify are former US Navy aviators Ryan Graves and David Fravor. Also set to testify is David Grusch, a former combat officer and veteran of the Pentagon's intelligence community who claimed to have received "extensive classified information about deeply covert programs that he says possess retrieved intact and partially intact craft of non-human origin."

‘The Pentagon and Washington bureaucrats have kept this information hidden’

According to some members of the US Congress, UFO/UAP knowledge actually exists and has been hidden from the public. "The Pentagon and Washington bureaucrats have kept this information hidden for decades, and we're finally going to shed some light on it," Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) said in a House Committee on Oversight and Reform statement. "We're bringing in credible witnesses who can provide public testimony because the American people deserve the truth. We're done with the cover-ups."

The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) was created at the direction of Congress by the Department of Defense in 2022 to investigate UAP reports. “The status quo on the part of the U.S. government has been to leave the American public in the dark regarding information about UAPs, refuse to answer questions posed by whistleblowers, avoid the concerns Americans have about the possible threats UAPs pose to our national security and public safety, and default to extreme and unnecessary over-classification. If the last few months have taught me anything, it is that this is an issue that matters to Americans. It also impacts the transparency and accountability our government is supposed to grant to the people who it serves. I look forward to bringing this topic to light,” said Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-Fla.).
